In
memory
of
my
father
Richard William
West
of
Cirencester
(18e0_1959)
Preface
In
the course
of
writing
this
book
I
have
examined
a
large
number
of
MI5
documents,
and
information
contained
in
them
has
been
incorporated
into
the
text.
In
view
of
the new
legislation dealing
with
Official
Secrets,
however,
and
the
position
of
MI5,
I
must make
it
absolutely clear
that
these
documents
have
been
drawn entirely
from
the
thousands
of
MI5
papers
that
have
been made
available
for
public examination
in
the Public
Record
Office
at
Kew,
the NationalArchives
of
the United
States
of
America
in
Washington,
the
FBIarchives
in
Washington
and
the
Canadian
National
Archives in
Ottawa.
In
Britain
the
Departments
of
State
that
have released the
most significant documents
from MI5
used
in
this book are
the
Home Office and the
Foreign
Office.
As
far
as
I
am alvare,
I
have
never spoken
to
any member
of
MI5,
or
to
any
former
member
of
MI5,
or
to
any
person
who
is
bound
by
a
lifelong
duty
of
confidentiality.
The
recent legislation amending the
Official
Secrets
Act
seems
tohave been
introduced
as
a
result
of
the
Splcatcher
affair
in
Australia.
ln
Spycatcher
Peter
Wright
made many
comments
on
technical
operational matters
which could
only
have been
known
to
MI5
employees. Unless
MI5's
archives
are
fully
opened,
it
rvill
never
be
possible
to
make any
kind of
sensible
comment
on
such matters.
Ihave
made
no attempt to
deal
with
them
here.
On
the
other
hand,
lmportant
and
revealing facts have been
discovered
in
the
MI5
papers
which
have
been released
in Britain in
the normal
way
and
in
Canada
and America
under
Freedom
of
Information
legislation.
In
lny
case
the
manifold
errors contained
in
Spycatcher
and
other
books
bated on
fallible
human memory
over
half
a
century
seem
to
suggest
that contemporary
documents
from
MI5's
extensive
output of
paper
lr€
more
reliable
as
a
pr(mary
source.
It
is interesting
also
that
the
prelent-day internal
MI5
files appear
to
have been rveeded
in
some
way
befbrc they
were made
available
to
the
Fluency
Committee
lnvettigating
Hollis, otherwise
the
new evidence revealed
here
must
rur€ly
hnve become
known
to thcnr,Sitrr:e
